Book Review: The Girl With All The Gifts

Maybe it's just me, but the whole zombie thing is really wearing me out. I'm still reading (not watching) The Walking Dead, but the idea if the World War Z movie or another zombie book or comic is frankly tiring. Thus, when it became evident early that The Girl With All The Gifts was in the same universe as so much zombie fiction right now, I probably would have thrown my hands up in frustration if the book wasn't so good.

Game of Thrones Season 4 Book Comparison and Review - Episodes 6, 7 and 8

I know I am behind in my Game of Thrones reviewing. In my defence I have a very good excuse. I am getting married in a couple of days and really haven’t had the time. But after episode 8 and given it’s 1.30am and I still can’t sleep, I am thinking that some words on the subject are in order.

Join me under the cut for a bit of a break down of some of the best of the last three episodes.

The Dresden Readthrough: Small Favor

We continue our readthrough of Jim Butcher's uber-popular urban fantasy series The Dresden Files today with book ten, White Night. The continuing plan is to do a book a month on the first Tuesday of each month, and with 16 books on the publication schedule between now and when our readthrough is over, our reading list should be pretty full for the foreseeable future.

The sixteenth book came out this past week, and it's really weird hearing some chatter here and there while reading this one. Even weirder is how this started out as possibly my favorite and unfortunately dragged a little until it picked up at the end. They can't all be crazy winners.
